There is no code here to handle that. your code starting code which launches this window, is passed arguments if you opened the file by double clicking after associating it with the file. You need to read those arguments and pass the file path through so that this code auto opens it.

Hi Christian Graus, can you provide sample code for that? It would really help for me. Thanks!

Added a link to my answer. By the way, if you gave me a 1 vote, that is a bad vote. The correct vote if I helped you, is 5.

np, I don't normally trawl for votes, but you've confirmed my suspicion that there are people who assume that a 1 vote is a good vote :-)
